Hilarious isn’t it?!
If you couldn’t be arsed to click, it’s the story about Waitrose asking people on Twitter why they shopped there, using the hashtag #WaitroseReasons.
I’m sure there were a couple praising the organic quinoa and hand-packed shiitake mushrooms but of course most people seized on it to take the p*ss – and it was genius.
There were comments like “I shop at Waitrose because Clarissa’s pony just WILL NOT eat Asda value straw”, “I shop at Waitrose because it makes me feel important and I detest being surrounded by poor people” and my favourite, the phrase above, overheard in a London store.
Every time I thought of that today, it made me laugh, although I don’t think it’s the monumental gaffe half the media are saying it is, I think it got them huge publicity, and not in a negative way, and that Waitrose should play to its strengths – it is posh and it’s the only supermarket that is, market covered!
Something else that made me smile today was the arrival of this:
A box of Nakd bars, very kindly sent to me by the nice people at Natural Balance Foods. I love a good Nakd, as it were, they’re delicious, it’s always good to get good gluten-free food in mainstream – and that little lot should keep me going for at least… er… *cough*… let’s move on, shall we?!
To the thing that didn’t make me smile:
The lovely district council at work has decided to start charging for most on-street parking, which is always a bonus. I’ve been having to try and find (like everyone else) a space in the roads in which it’s still free – but which are much further away from the office. I knew I had one warning in the place I used to work, as it was the first week, and I used it today – but it was still very irritating to see it on there – and did it really need to be that threatening red??!
Friday tomorrow though, at least, and I’m having a lesson on The Nameless One after work – so it’s all good 🙂
Did you see the Waitrose thing? If so, what did you think? Favourite Nakd flavour??
